The 2007-08 Writer's Strike, formally the 2007–08 Writers Guild of America strike, or simply the Writer's Strike was a massive strike by the writers of the Writers Guild of America labor union for increased pay due to the large profits of the companies they work for. It began on November 5, 2007 and ended February 12, 2008.
Rob was upset by the writer's strike because of the lack of new television programming. Bucky was also affected because he views everything he does as "writing", which caused him to hire Reed to be the "editor" of what Bucky, Rob and Satchel says and/or does. However, Reed proved to be incompetent as an editor and was fired. In defiance of the strike, Reed and Bucky resumed writing, much to Rob's frustration, who didn't want to get involved. Reed was writing for reality TV shows. Bucky was writing poetry about household objects and later a documentary on Satchel, who was referred to as "The Lowbrow Dunghog". Then Satchel later wrote the concept for a TV show called Can I Eat This?. In April 2008, even though the writer's strike was over, Bucky insisted on giving "lines" to himself, Mac, Satchel and Rob from the comic strip "Dust Bowl Willy", saying that Satchel and Rob "bored him unassisted."
